These are my thoughts to another poster, yesterday, on the AJC blog, “Get Schooled.” I think my readers will appreciate my thoughts, below, regarding the proper place of the law in society:
“Again, to raise consciousness regarding ‘the law, I saw the movie, ‘Loving’ (Loving vs. State of Virginia) regarding a true story of a black and white couple by the surname of Loving, who took their right to marry as high as the U. S. Supreme Court to fight Virginia’s miscegenation laws in the 1960s (and earlier). This couple won that fight for themselves and for all other mixed-race couples. However, what this loving couple had to endure because of that unenlightened law was inhumane and consciousness was raised as a result of their case throughout the nation.
As Jefferson said, ‘Nothing is without change except the inalienable rights of man.’
Please see the movie and open your hearts to the proper place of the law in relation to humanity’s call.”
